Knowledge base for the beginning teacher by Maynard C Reynolds( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During 1987 and 1988, a Knowledge Base Action Group appointed through the Center for Change in Teacher Education sponsored a series of leadership workshops in various regions of the country on institutional change processes and ways to use the knowledge bases in designing teacher preparation programs. The major work of the group was to assemble a set of juried statements prepared by leading figures in various fields of education to reflect the knowledge needed by professionally responsible beginning teachers. In this context, a detailed study was conducted of beliefs about the knowledge bases for teacher education in four separate settings. The aim was to secure data for use in action group planning and development activities. This report provides preliminary findings from these surveys. Three of the surveys were conducted in connection with workshops devoted to a consideration of the knowledge bases for teacher education. The fourth survey was conducted within one large university faculty group, using a mailed questionnaire. A copy of the questionnaire is appended as well as tables displaying summaries of questionnaire results. (Jd)

Teacher education : renegotiating roles for mainstreaming by Judith K Grosenick( Book )

7 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this volume is upon the changes that are needed in teacher education programs to address the process of mainstreaming handicapped children. The authors of the papers presented are associated with Deans' Grants Projects. The first section presents an overview of past and present special education services and advances a philosophy for the future of teacher education in general. In the second section, the papers examine strategies for change and their application to Deans' Grants Projects. The third section presents case studies of the evolution of three Deans' Grants Projects. The fourth section deals with specific project practices that may hold promise for the successful implementation of change in higher education. The fifth section examines several topics that intersect with the foci of all Deans' Grants Projects. Sections six and seven consist of one paper each. In the former, the author presents a commentary on the challenges facing education in general in today's society; in the latter, there is presented initially an historical analysis of different approaches to serving children with special needs and, then, a synthesis of the efforts, problems, and implications of the Deans' Grants Projects to date.

Domain-referenced testing in special education by Wells Hively( Book )

9 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented are eight papers that deal with the educational implications for handicapped children of domain-referenced testing, as contrasted with standardized norm-referenced achievement testing. The crucial aspects of each testing model are highlighted by W. Hively in an introductory section. M. Reynolds surveys past and present special education pressures and analyzes their impact on testing. T. Donlon reviews historical and technical concepts of test-score referencing and points out complexities and confusions in terminology among different types of evaluation. Discussed by J. Rosner are test construction and utilization in connection with an adaptive perceptual skills curriculum. Explained by A. Hofmeister are procedures and materials for training teachers to integrate criterion-referenced testing and instruction within the regular classroom. The creation of a comprehensive computer-based information bank in the area of reading instruction and its use in domain-referenced test development is described by R. O'Reilly. Examined is the use of domain-referenced testing in the delivery of special education services in a rural area (F. Hammarback and C. Koenig). Ethical considerations in the use of norm-domain-, and behavior-referenced testing are considered in the final paper by E. Joselyn. Also included are a 60-item bibliography on domain-referenced testing and biographical information about the authors. (Lh)

7 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eight papers from a 1982 meeting of the Dean's Grant Projects examine issues related to the current status and future needs of mainstreaming handicapped students. M.

Progressive inclusion : meeting new challenges in special education by Margaret C Wang( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper addresses trends and issues in the progressive inclusion of students with disabilities in regular schools and classes. It examines the current changing school scene in terms of changes directly affecting students with disabilities and those who work with them (such as deinstitutionalization of students with severe and profound disabilities), demographic changes that cause increasing numbers of students to have special needs, and changes in the economics of the school situation. The authors urge a progressive inclusion policy that requires "deliberate speed" in efforts to make regular schools strong valid resources for all children, including those with special needs. Design characteristics of an effective inclusive school are suggested based on a meta-review of the research literature, which quantified the relative influences on learning of 28 factors ranging from classroom management, through classroom climate and curriculum design, to district demographics. Additional suggestions for moving toward greater inclusion are also offered, such as merging Title I, learning disability, and related programs for students showing learning-rate problems in basic academic areas, integrating professional groups, and setting a common sunset date for legislation affecting all categorical programs in education.

Fostering resilience and learning success in schools : 20/20 analysis by Maynard C Reynolds( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are many difficulties in categorical programs for students with special needs as they are currently implemented. The technique of 20/20 Analysis is a simple and effective method of developing an integrative service delivery system in which students who show the least and most progress on significant outcome variables receive intensive study and instruction. The analysis consists of a two-phased process. In the initial phase, teachers and administrators select an area of learning and assess the achievement of students within that area using existing data. Achievement levels for students below the 20th percentile, or above the 80th, are identified as "low 20" or "high 20" groups for whom curriculum adaptation or intensive instruction are needed. This analysis provides a systematic outcome-based approach to meeting special needs of students. It allows for a reliable and cost-effective way to identify service needs as it undoes the current practice of labeling children. Focusing on the individual needs of students and promoting collaboration among professionals are benefits of 20/20 Analysis. Research results from elementary schools in a large urban district show that 79% of those children labeled as special education students and almost all in Chapter 1 program were in the "low 20." These results are predictive of the usefulness of 20/20 analysis. Three related publications are listed. (SLD)
